Allows automatic processing of bounces or automatic replies to emails sent by pretix.

Project description

This is a plugin for pretix. Once installed and configured, it makes pretix use random Sender headers for emails like for outgoing emails. The From and Reply-To headers remain untouched. It then periodically checks for emails in a specified IMAP inbox and adds replied emails to the log of an order. This leads to an automatic logging of bounces on pretix-level.


This requires an additional section in the pretix.cfg config file that looks like this:


The plugin will only be effective for mails sent through the system default mailer (specified in the same file), not for events with a custom SMTP server.
